In my earlier posts, I gave you an insight into abroad universities and had often highlighted the merits of abroad education in different ways. Now I am going country specific and will brief you about some hot abroad destinations for further studies in my upcoming series of posts.
SINGAPORE promotes excellence in all its sectors and is no different in terms of quality of education it offers. Since it houses the best of the east, students get a chance to become a part of the global community. The outlook towards life may be modern, but it is affordable all the same. Additionally scholarships and tuition fee waivers are provided to good students. The reasons may be many to choose Singapore as the education destination apart from affordable education. Few of them are excellent cultural activities, excellent night life, lush greenery, proximity to Asian regions and cheap airlines are available from Singapore to Thailand. Also one can visit ancient cities of Cambodia.

So I assure you considering all the goodies that Singapore possess, it is going to be a favorite and hot spot education destination not only for India but for the entire world.
